  • From Charlottsville To Santa Fe

    The blog title is from a line in an album by the Dawes, a California band. They’re good, but the interesting thing is we know their parents but not them. These pictures were made in New Mexico. Even though there is only one real Christmas picture, they all feel Christmasy to me. Or, at least […]

  • Winter

    Winter. It’s coming. In Virginia, at least in our area, there are usually three or four snow storms over the course of the cold months. Unlike some places like Chicago or Boston where the snow piles up and piles up, the snow usually melts before the next storm arrives. You’d think that would be a […]

  • Just Want To See

    Pastel Sky, looking like a water color. That wasn’t my intention, but that’s what happened. In this day of all things digital photographers are trying to make their work look like anything but photography. I understand the need to take things to the next level. I do it myself more times than not. Just don’t […]

  • Where The Wild Things Grow

    This doesn’t happen very often, but when the sky lights up like this it’s usually in winter, with nice low, golden light. Because I know that some of you may be wondering, I had my “procedure” yesterday. It lasted for less than two hours, which includes a mountain of paperwork and a billion questions. The […]

  • What Does It Mean To Travel

    On a Sunday morning. I realized I haven’t published multiple pictures in some time. I’ve been photographing bits and piece of trains forever because I like them. I grew up riding the Super Chief and the El Capitan and eventually The City of Los Angeles from Los Angeles to New York City via Chicago. Of […]

  • Mistakes

    One day in winter when the sun was starting to lower, I saw the it explode behind a tree. Light and color went flying everywhere. I left without my hat. After seeing the image on the monitor I started thinking random thoughts. Again. I have a friend who lives in Vermont. The state has done […]

  • Number Three

    I used to do this a lot. I’d brace my camera on the dashboard of the car, set everything to auto and let the camera do its thing. The only part of my that ever touched the camera was one finger. The one I used to push the shutter release button. I didn’t even look […]

  • Winter Light

    Low winter light. It’s powerful, clean and almost explosive at the ends of the day. Especially if the cloud cover is broken or there are almost clear skies. I got lucky last week. After a day of rain, the sun broke through at just about dusk. Man, did it break through. It was powerful. It […]

  • Pieces of Paper

    Amazing. Last evening, the light was just amazing. As usual, I was in the wrong place. So, I did what I could. This picture fits nicely into a sub-genre of landscape pictures called, ” New Landscape.” Me? I just call it a picture. Or, photograph. I don’t think photography has to be sliced and diced […]
